Year by year
we’ve watched
them fall;
in town square
we’ve seen
them brawl.

Markets buckle
as bankers
suckle,
broken bubbles
turn streets to
rubble…

Rocks to toss
across
the block,
as thumping
shields approach
the flock.

Now comes the
part we know
so well;
adrenaline
begins
to swell.

A show of force
to make
them bow…
Wait! What if -
imagine now -

As shaken people
hold their
ground,
impatiently
they mill
around,

within the
ranks of crony’s
thugs
one officer
sighs and
shrugs.

Removes his gear
and throws it
down,
drops his gun
on the
ground.

Steps over
the line
that lies
have drawn,
refusing to
be made
a pawn.

Another from
the people’s
side
decides it’s
time to turn
the tide.

Takes off the
mask he chose
to wear,
drops it as
he takes
the dare.

Instead of gore
spilled on
the land,
each grabs
his brother
and shakes
his hand.

  1. LUV it. I daresay that’d make some pretty good street theater, too.
